Rabat – Police at the Marrakech-Menara airport arrested four Tunisian women for drug trafficking on Monday, November 18.
The suspects were accompanied by a five-year old child according to a statement from the General Directorate of National Security (DGSN).
Search operations enabled security services to seize 6.485 grams of cannabis resin that the suspects had carefully concealed in the form of platelets in their personal belts.
The suspects, aged between 19 and 45, were preparing to leave Morocco on a flight heading to Tunisia.
Police put the suspects in custody for further investigation to determine the circumstances of the case.
Today’s arrest followed a similar operation at Casablanca’s international airport, where police arrested two Tunisian women in possession of nearly 12 kilograms of cannabis resin on November 8.
The operation is part of Morocco’s strategy to combat drug trafficking and cross border crimes.
Morocco’s DGSN seized 112 tons and 138 kilograms of cannabis and its derivatives from January 1 to September 15.
